Brake levers - almost embarrassed to ask!

I'm switching the handlebars on my mountain bike. i've just ground to a halt as i can't work out how to remove the brake levers - see pic below. the bolt for the gear shifter is obvious, but i can't see an equivalent for the brake lever. i know i must be missing something obvious but i did wonder if anyone could help! (i'm learning bike maintenance from scratch!) :ohmy:

thanks, Mike

I can't see what levers they are, but have you tried looking for a screw head when the lever is squeezed? ie inside the gap when the lever has been pulled

aha! That's it! i have to unhook the brake cable, but once that's done i can fold back the lever and get to a screw which loosens the lever on the handlebar. brilliant. thanks for your help, Steve Austin. (i never thought i'd say that!)
